Marcella Young

Position :
Minority Outreach Advisor for the Latino Community and Essential Worker Health Advocate

I became a American Citizen in 2015 and have a dual citizenship for Columbia and America. My father is a dentist in Columbia and just as doctors and nurses need comfortable PPE so does the dentistry environment. Even before COVID there are car accidents and injuries that damage a persons face and need immediate surgery including dental operations. These type of procedures need full PPE to ensure the patient is not exposed to any harmful bacteria to allow for the best outcome possible. PPE needs to be comfortable so the medical and dental community of workers can perform at their peak. No one can do their best care if they are miserable in their respirator or surgical mask.
